WOW GRIPPING TO THE END.
THAT WAS QUITE A STORY. WHAT A BRAVE MAN TO GO THROUGH WHAT HE DID. I REALLY ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. I FELT HIS JIYS AND FEARS AND EVEN HELD MY BREATH IN PARTS WHERE HE WAS IN FEAR OF BEING DISCOVERED, ALSO A WONDERFUL READER, A PART WHICH...HAD TO BE READ BY A MAN. NO WOMAN COULD HAVE DONE IT JUSTICE I LOVE TRUE STORIES..

Update re: O'Brien information
Thanks to a Royal Canadian Air Force webpage there is quite a bit of background information about the pilot and author of the book here..........
I hope this helps readers to understand the author in some depth

Impressive determination to survive
O’Brien would not have survived without unusual stamina, ability to endure physical pain, willingness to kill if necessary, wit and cautious nature that warned him of danger, and his refusal to give in adverse circumstances. Combined with his extraordinary mental and physical strength—O’Brien always had luck on his side.
